Ahom Wrestling = Ancient Wrestling of Ahom Kingdom, more preciesly Maal juj or wrestling (Assamese: মাল যুঁজ)

More in depth, The Ahom (Pron: /ˈɑːhɒm/), or Tai-Ahom is an ethnic group found today in the Indian states of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. They are the admixed descendants of the Tai people who reached the Brahmaputra valley of Assam in 1228 and the local people who joined them over the course of history (Source - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahom_people )
